Gettin' Grungy

I absolutely LOVE the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set! It is just so much fun to play with! So to show my guests just how much fun it is we made this card at the August Make and Take.

  • Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Happy Day
  • Card Stock: Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
  • Ink: Soft Sky, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate
  • Accessories: Basic Gray Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

For this card you need to start off with a piece of Soft Sky card stock cut at 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”. Next cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 4” x 10-1/2” and score it at 5-1/4”. Stamp the tiny dots splatter image across the bottom right hand corner twice in Soft Sky ink. Then stamp the larger splatter in Smoky Slate ink twice.

Next stamp the three splotches twice in Soft Sky ink. Stamp the diagonal lines twice in Basic Gray ink but only ink up the stamp once.

Next cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 1” x 4”. Stamp the greeting from Happy Day onto the card stock in Smoky Slate ink. Adhere this onto a 1-1/4" x 4" piece of Crushed Curry card stock. Wrap a piece of Basic Gray Stitched Grosgrain ribbon around the panel and tie it into a knot. Adhere this strip across the bottom of the card front and you’re done!

This is such a fun and simple card to make!
